President Trump’s plan to militarize the border is shaping up well. California is the only one of the border states that hasn’t agreed to cooperate. Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey announced Monday that 225 National Guard troops were being sent to the border.
It’s just the initial phase. More troops are expected to be deployed on Tuesday.
The left’s attempts to block President Trump’s efforts to secure the border are failing. Democrats refused to fully fund the border wall and openly denigrated the administration’s plan to empower Border Patrol agents.
Democrats are protecting illegals because that’s what their base wants them to do. Modern liberals don’t know what to do with themselves if they aren’t fighting for some cause. Illegal immigration is a convenient thing to fight for.
The border discussions come as a “caravan” of migrants continues to march toward the U.S. Officials thought that the horde was broken up last week but the migrants gleefully admit that they’re still planning to sneak into America.
Mexican officials pretended that they were going to break up the caravan and send everyone home, but they’re actually making it easier for the migrants to continue on their journey.
“I don’t think this is a partisan issue or an identity issue,” Gov. Ducey said. “You show me somebody who is for drug cartels or human trafficking or this ammunition that’s coming over a wide-open and unprotected border here.”
The Trump administration plans to deploy up to 4,000 National Guard troops to the U.S.-Mexico border. Illegal border crossings have dropped dramatically since Trump took office. The number is creeping up again, however. Migrants are determined to test the administration. They want to know if they’re serious about the hardline approach.
That’s why Trump wants National Guard troops positioned along the border. He wants to eradicate the pro-illegal immigration policies inculcated by the previous administration.
